    Well if it's a .vpk file, it goes in to \Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\addons

    Then load up L4D, go to Extras - Add-ons and check it's in there :)

    no there not vpk files,their like..installing css add-ons you get material,map etc etc and you drop the files into the folder if that makes sense.

    Install the file I highlighted in red. Then, go into L4d --> Single Player --> add on Campaign (will be at the bottom of the list of selections). That will then take you to a new screen that will show the map.

    You can play it Multiplayer, but this is a sure fire way to find it.


    Also, the two files that I have in red, will be the only files that come in the .rar folder that you downloaded when you download the map

    Ah, well those go in the respective folders in the \left 4 dead\left4dead folder, but as far as I'm aware, if you install it that way, and don't use a .vpk file, you can't create a lobby using that campaign, where as with Death Aboard 6.1, which I downloaded the .vpk file for, I can create a lobby, choose the Death Aboard campaign, have people join, and find a server :)

    Ah right, a lot of unfinished campaigns won't come in vpk format, they're more of a "demo" than anything, there won't be any dedicated severs out there for those.

    Death Aboard does though (I have one :)).

    Personally, I'm skipping all those unfinished, non-vpk ones because you can only load them on a local server, or in "single-player mode" which I think is stupid for a purely team-based game :p

    Is this worth getting? Am currently Multiplaying on COD 5 but would welcome a change, especially if there was a TPU dedicated server?

    I love Left 4 Dead, especially if you get a good group of friends playing. Even if we lose we're having a laugh while doing it, so s'all good.

    It's a unique game in it's HEAVY reliance on team-play, but I think it's worth the money, even if there are a limited number of maps *shrugs*
